    BOSTON -- Jonathan Lee scored a career-high 27 points, including two free throws to seal Northeastern's 85-82 overtime win against George Mason Wednesday night.

    The Huskies (13-15, 9-8 Colonial Athletic Association) led 83-82 after George Mason's Bryan Allen made a layup.

    The Patriots (23-7, 14-3) then fouled Lee, who made both foul shots with 7 seconds left. Ryan Pearson missed a 3-pointer with 2 seconds left, and George Mason snapped a five-game win streak.

    Kashief Edwards, whose dunk sent it into OT with 29 seconds left, added a career-high 22 points for the Huskies, who had lost five of six coming in.

    The two teams combined for 43 turnovers, but George Mason had three in overtime, while Northeastern had zero.

    The Huskies trailed 38-31 at halftime and shot 66.7 percent (12 of 18) in second half.

    Mike Morrison had 19 points and Bryon Allen 10 points and 13 assists for the Patriots.
